Noel Edmonds might not be gracing our screens for much longer.Deal Or No Deal has been axed by Channel 4 after eleven years on screen and will end this Autumn.
It has been revealed that the channel will announce later today that the big money quiz, fronted by Noel Edmonds , will air for the final time later this year. Channel 4 boss Jay Hunt has decided to say “no deal” on making future episodes, and the remaining ones that will be screened were filmed back in 2015.
However, bosses have decided to let the show go out on a high and it is understood a ‘Farewell Tour’ will take place with around a dozen new episodes being filmed around the UK at different locations.
A TV insider said: “Deal Or No Deal doesn’t get the ratings it used to and it is not a cheap daytime show to make. Noel and ‘Deal’ had a great run but bosses have just decided it is the right time to end the series. The farewell tour will be a great way for fans to say goodbye to the show.”
